ready

I did not stop moving all day long yesterday. I stayed up far too late wrapping the last of the gifts and addressing holiday cards. The boys have a half day of school today then they're off for the next two weeks. Wondering if I'm ready for Christmas now, inside and out.

Thank you for reading and for all of your comments this week. xoxo

I still need to make a start on wrapping. However, a nice perk here in the Netherlands is that in many stores when you buy something they ask if it is a gift - if so they wrap it for you. Lovely. Although it has to be said that this can cause enormous lines at Christmas time. Your berry photo is so simple and looks lovely.

You're going to have such fun with your boys for the next two weeks!

it always seems like there are a million things left to be done i the days before christmas, but it always gets done. christmas can't wait. the trick is to find a way to enjoy it while doing it. not something i am always good at. but this year i miss the stress, being in israel with very little christmas in the air. except for my house, that is :)

I never feel I'm ready, especially inside. But then I see my kids eyes sparkling with anticipation and happiness, and I then I feel ready. Have a wonderful trip, Lecia.

Wondering if I'm ready, too...I guess we have no choice in the matter! Have a very merry holiday, Lecia and enjoy the quiet time with your family!

I don't know that any of us are ever ready...but then again the lesson is that we should all probably just let go, relax and enjoy.
